Overview & Tasting Notes
The 2011 vintage is a blend of our top vineyards, sourced from the red volcanic soil strip that runs through the Weinkeller, NVC and Short Flat Vineyards, with an average vine age of 50 years. The vineyards were picked between 10 and 25 February. The parcels were kept separate until blending in December 2011, before going back into wood until May 2012 for bottling. This is a typical Vat 9 from a good Hunter vintage. It shows a wonderfully lifted nose of red berries and subtle oak. A pretty wine with generous rounded fruit on the palate and a creamy texture that gives the wine an extra element of interest. Medium bodied shiraz at its best.
Awards & Accolades
2011 Vat 9 Hunter Shiraz has not yet won any awards.
94 Points - Chocolate box, mixed berries, touch of spicy oak richness and subtle menthol and pepper top notes. It’s gentle and composed with a lovely creamy mouth-feel, balanced acidity and a little chop of tannin pulling through on the finish. A very good Vat 9 – plump and delicious. Age-worthy of course.
